Costa Rica – The Pre-Trip

Costa RicaA group of us are all headed to Costa Rica the first part of 2021.  Like Feb/March.  We’re still picking out specific dates.

Its less that we’re traveling together.  More that we’re all traveling to the same place during the same 1-2 week window.

If your interested in the details, reply to this post, and I’ll get ya invited to the planning document.

+1 to responsive

Site went down a couple of days ago.  Since I had to get it up, I figured I’d update it.  OS update, package update, wp update, and theme update.   Fully responsive, and mobile friendly.  Fresh new free cert for SSL.

There were 6k+ spam comments, so I installed something to deal with those.

The syntax highlighter couldn’t be saved.  I found another one, so far I like it better.

If any of you can tell me what style is controlling the white around the ‘sessions’ on the graph (bottom right), I’d appreciate it.  

for reals right

Is it too much to ask during the goddamn work day for 2 separate sessions of 80 uninterrupted minutes each of quality dump time?

Thailand Day 8 & 9 – We made the most of it

leaving the AirBnB, w/ Grams

This was the day we needed to catch our flight, sort of. Our flight was 15 mins after midnight, so technically it was the next day, but there was no need for hotel rooms. We were all packed up and on the van headed to the airport around noon. The ladies all gathered to say good bye, and we took a picture with Grams, she had maybe 15 of these hanging on the in the center area. The plan was to get to the airport, ditch our bags, and visit somewhere near the airport.

During breakfast, Godoloju was still not feeling great and said something to Grams about it. She left for about 10 mins and came back with a couple of different medications, one was their version of aspirin, and the other was I think either a powder or a paste that she mixed into a liquid. It was a dark color by the time I arrived on scene my guess is either coffee or water. Godoloju spent a minute or so arguing with her about it, not really wanting to take something unknown, but she wasn’t having it, and he ended up drinking it. My only thought was ‘lets hope that wasn’t a laxative’.

Thailand Day 7 – Islands and beaches

always raining

Everyone was up and eating breakfast by 8:30 am, with the ride to the boat at 9. There was apparently some miscommunication with Grams about the breakfast and a few of the things ordered never showed up. Godoloju had a rough night and spent much of it in the bathroom, with TheGopher trying to sleep in the room attached. TheGopher caught a pretty large spider in his room that crawled into a cup allowing him to take it outside and let it go. We googled it a bit and think its a Huntsman Spider, but are not really sure.

Before we headed out, someone asked if they had a laundry service and Grams said that they did. She told us to grab the hampers out of our rooms, to throw our laundry in them, and set them outside our doors. We all did, they probably had 6 or more loads to do.

Thailand Day 6 – The tides and the lady boys.

The sunsets were pretty amazing at the AirBnB

We had to check out and meet our ride to the AirBnB by noon, so most of us met at our hotel for breakfast around 10 am and we’re on the road by 12:15 pm. Its nearly a 3 hour ride from Patong to Krabi, and we had a nice air conditioned van for this trip. It was raining for much of the trip, but looking back, I wish we could have figured out how to do this ride on scooters. Not sure one way scooters are a thing though. We stopped once for a smoke and a pee break but the trip there was pretty uneventful, other than just looking out the windows, lots to see.
